This papercutting+painting is specially made and dedicated to someone that become my rock idol, that respect for his abundant positive energy that he shared in many online/offline platform. He is Gary Vaynerchuck. He was known as Gary Vee. If you just know or read or heard Gary Vee, just googling him. You will easily find him anywhere. His achievement is solid proof that he is the man who just does the work and he lives what he preaches.
The project of combining woman (portrait) with car rendering already planned a long time ago. Because I want to make the car as general interest, not only related to man. I want a girl or woman who has the history with her car, can happily show it. But the problem was, finding out who was the woman that I can draw and including her car in one frame. Then the moment is come, got the idea about whom should I draw.

Moment dalam bahasa sehari-hari bisa diartikan: kejadian pada suatu masa tertentu atau saat dimana kejadian tertentu itu terjadi. Kita sendiri biasanya juga akan melakukan sesuatu untuk mengingatkan atau merayakan suatu moment atau peristiwa. Salah satunya adalah moment ulang tahun. Dan meskipun waktu yang saya punya sangat terbatas untuk menyelesaikan karya ini, saya tidak ingin kehilangan moment penting tersebut. Moment ulang tahun Presiden RI ke 7, Bapak Joko Widodo, yaitu tanggal 21 Juni.
This gift is special for me, because not only made within 2 nights but also dedicated to people that I (and also other Philips Lighting Indonesia employees) respect. The decision to make this gift came when I heard the news that he will visit Indonesia on May 24-25 on Tuesday. Still, don’t know what kind of gift that will create. Finally, got the idea on Wednesday afternoon and start to make the sketch on Wednesday night after iftar & tarawih and start to cut the paper & apply paint on Thursday night. Rushing with time because, on Friday (May 25, 2018), we will have Town Hall Meeting at the office, including farewell with Mr. Murali Sivaraman.
For some people, car ownership is a symbol. Not only for men, but also for women. A car is the symbol of their achievement and status. A car also reflection about what you are. But for some people, a car also part of their life story and in the end, it becomes of their life history. I will share behind the scene of the gift that I present to my best friend, Oki Firman Cahyono, who decide to pursue other interest and resign from the company. It short story that connected people, life, and car.
Philips Lighting Indonesia as a multinational company has the official batik shirt that represents the company with batik Indonesia pattern, with two color option, white and purple.

Jakarta is the capital city of Indonesia. The city that never sleeps. The city that was now known as with the traffic jam. The city that develops and grow to become the megapolitan city. As other city identities, there are some iconic building or places that can be used to represent this city for paper cutting + painting artwork. For this experiment, I choose to use Monumen Nasional (Monas), Tugu Selamat Datang, Patung Pancoran and silhouette of the high-rise building.
